    Great way to spend time in the outdoors
    This was our grandkids' second annual visit to the park. They really had a blast on the ropes and ziplines, and try more challenging courses each time. The safety preparation, gear and locking systems are excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The outdoor johns are clean and the handwashing station is great. This time we got some cold drinks at the concession truck and that experience was good as well - so glad they have cold apple juice as an alternative to soda. I was an observer and glad to have the adirondack chairs and other bench seats in the shade. The kids want to come back again next summer!

    Gauntlet isn’t easy; worth the challenge
    This is the best rope course I have ever done. Wife and I decided to challenge ourselves on the gauntlet. An hour later we were exhausted with a couple of bruises but felt accomplished and had a ton of fun. The staff is wonderful, and everything is really well done. With so many courses we still have a lot more to try on future visits.

    One-Of-A-Kind Experience That I Cannot Get Enough Of!
    Sandy Spring Adventure Park is a unique and amazing experience. I have been a season pass holder for many years now, and I never get tired of this place. I have brought family, friends, colleagues, clients, and a whole soccer team here, and everyone has loved it. Regardless of age or fitness level, SSAP has courses for you. Whether you are looking for an awesome full-body workout in the serenity of nature, a place for family or team building fun, or anything in between, you are missing out if you don't give this place a try. The pictures do not do it justice. Whether you want to be high up near the treetops, or just a few feet above the ground, what are you waiting for?! The only downside to this place is the feeling you will have after your first time when you realize you could have been climbing here for years. ; )

    Safe, fun, and challenging!
    My wife and I recently agreed to a "yes day" as part of our summer fun with the kids and going to The Adventure Park was their #1 choice. This was our second trip and it felt like a completely different experience because we were able to do many courses the kids were too scared to do the first time. We highly recommend this place for 3-4 hours of non-stop fun. To share one of my favorite parenting quotes; "never stop children from doing dangerous things carefully."

    Awesome day of family fun!
    My now 17-year old son and I have been going to The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring for about 10 years now and it is our favorite adventure park. We love the variety and length of the courses, sometimes we are in the trees for 45 minutes on the harder courses. It's challenging, safe, and so much fun! The online booking is easy too, which makes it so convenient, and I think it's a great value.

    Family Fun Day
    Great family outing. Family with adult children went for birthday fun. Lots of zip lines and challenging obstacles. Something for everyone. Even the food truck pizza was good.

    Awesome high ropes adventure courses
    Amazing park. So much fun w so many courses. More than ziplines, the challenges this high ropes course features will be enjoyed by anyone regardless of athletic ability. From fun purple level courses to seriously challenging double black. This adventure park has a course suited for every one. My whole family and my Girl Scout troop loves these courses, weve always felt safe with the seemingly magic tweezle system keeping you locked on at all times. Bonus the staff are all amazingly friendly and helpful!

    Epic Ropes Course
    This adventure park is epic. Our family has done ropes courses before, but none have matched the beauty and scale of The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring. There are so many trails that you can't even come close to completing them all in one three hour session. We also loved how many trails are open to young people. Our twelve year old was permitted to attempt all but the hardest classification of trail - the double black. This is unusual in our experience where age and minimum weight limits usually prevent his participation. We were also impressed by the professionalism of the staff. They were young, but they were very safety conscious. We had a fantastic time and will certainly return!

    Excellent experience
    This was our second visit, and we had a great time again. The park is amazing, and the staff were helpful. The briefing and training went smoothly, and then we were climbing. The courses were clearly marked for difficulty which was helpful. There is something for all skill levels. Great place for adventure!

Took our Girl Scouts in an "unofficial" Girl Scout status. The really enjoyed it and it really helps with their independence as they are required to help themselves and buckle themselves in and out each time. The girls are 10 & 11. I had one girl who was crying and afraid prior to the visit but she came back beaming and can't wait to return and try the higher courses.

For the full adventure and experience all courses, I recommend 3-4 hours. The safety briefing/harnessing is at least 30-40 minutes of your time and the time it takes to prepare for each course adds time plus any crowds.

I do recommend as a fun adventure for your kids.

We love playing in the great outdoors and this experience was literally one our top 5 outdoor adventures. We currently live in Colorado but flew home to be part of our grandson's 11 year old birthday celebration. The setting is just beautiful, you're up in the trees with all levels to challenge your skills, from zip-lining to crossing the great expanses on perfectly laid out wires and blocks. The incredible safety features of the harness allow you to just focus on having fun. We highly recommend spending the day here if you're looking for an experience like no other!
You truly feel as if you're participating in some of the daredevil escapades from the movie Robin Hood. We love to ski, hike, bike, and fish. We will now add Sandy Spring Adventure Park to our new list of must experience at least once a year. We kept asking the question,... is there something like this out west. We HAD A BLAST and can't wait to go back!!

I went for the first time with my teenage daughter and we had a great time. Some parts of the course look easy, but they require strength, balance, and mental toughness. The whole place is well designed and they take a lot of time to explain the safety features. When storms were coming, the staff got everyone off the course calmly well before the rain arrived. It's a wonderful outdoor adventure, especailly after almost 18 months of the pandemic.

We went to this location on a Thursday in June with a group of 7th graders for a field trip. Check in was fast and they had a friendly staff who were very knowledgeable and helped us get up to speed quickly. They care about the safety and experience. I have to give a shout out to Tristan, Molly and Phil. I am a teacher and I went up an advanced level course with some of my students. My students did a great job, but there was an element of the course that I did not have the balance to complete. The on site staff quickly identified where I was and climbed up to assist me to the next nearest exit location. The only thing “hurt” during this process was my pride (sorry for the dad joke). There were dozens of staff on site who made sure our experience was wonderful by sharing their knowledge. This level of customer service is rare to find. It is highly recommended for any camp, school or youth program.

We visited the park yesterday for the first time and with 6 kids in tow. They challenged themselves, encouraged one another, got exercise, had fun and gained confidence. It was an amazing time!

In addition, we were very impressed how the park and staff handled safety in general, as well as it relates to Covid precautions.

What a great way to have great fun and do it safely, something the kids have long been overdue for!

The staff is rude, rude, rude. We have been ziplining around the world and have never been to such an unprofessional establishment. The place is also unsafe, unsupervised, no one helps, and they expect you to call out "staff" for help (but NO staff are nearby). Please, please please don't give this awful place your business. When we complained to management, they would not believe us and had to verify what we said with the staff. When staff verified our story, they eventually gave us a refund, which they said previously they couldn't do. AWFUL. It is just a matter of time until someone gets hurt here and they get sued and go out of business.

We were back at the Adventure Park during its pandemic-postponed opening weekend. Impressed with how check-in, safety orientation, getting onto the course, and assists were managed with masks and physical distancing. Will definitely recommend to others as a way to have outdoor fun and a physical challenge safely during the reopening phase of the pandemic.

It was a long wait to open, but we are thrilled to be able to provide an opportunity for adventure once again! Your words mean so much to us. Thank you for coming and spreading the word! We hope to see you back again soon.

The experience my grandkids and their parents and aunt had at Adventure Park of Sandy Springs was awesome. Ages ranged from 8 to 51 and everyone had a fantastic time. Each one worked their way through some difficult parts, challenged and well rewarded when they accomplished each trail which got progressively more difficult. Even my husband and I, the grandparents, had fun walking under the trails and watching all of them Zoom and squeal through the treetops. A perfectly wonderful way to spend an active afternoon. We will return! The entire staff was friendly, helpful, encouraging, and kind. The facilities were well cared. Great experience.

My first visit but definitely not my last. The staff were very helpful and I felt very safe up on the platforms as well as the elements. Ingenious system used to keep you safe at all times. Will definitely suggest this to my friends and co-workers.

The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring is our favorite thing to do in the DMV area and will undoubtably be at at top of our “miss list” when we move. We have been coming for the last 5 years, and our children are now 9 and 11. Every time it’s amazing to see them work through obstacles, use team work to help each other out, and overcome fears.

Last week they attended with friends and wanted to go off on their own. My husband and I did our own courses and had a great mini-date night!

We also had dinner from the pizza truck for the first time. Delicious!
